Description

Polygala Tenuifolia Powder

What is Polygala tenuifolia?

Polygala tenuifolia is a perennial purple flowering plant that grows in semi shade or no shade environments and has a tendency to grow in moist soil. Polygala tenuifolia is native to Asia and can be found in grasslands, mountain slopes, prairies, and shrub forests. Polygala tenuifolia root has widespread use in Traditional Chinese practices and is traditionally referred to as Yuan Zhi or Chinese Senega and is believed to promote cognitive function when ingested orally. Anecdotally, people report that the calming and stimulating effects of Yuan Zhi help promote focus without feeling overstimulated or experiencing jitters like large amounts of caffeine. Modern research has found that Yuan Zhi’s adaptogen-like properties may promote healthy stress levels and optimize cognitive function but more research is needed to solidify these findings.

Polygala Yuan Zhi Benefits and Uses

    • May help promote cognitive function
    • May help support feelings of well being
    • May help promote healthy stress levels
    • May help support respiratory health
    • May help promote neuroplasticity
    • May help support sleep quality

Polygala and The Brain

Polygala tenuifolia is quite unique since unlike most plant extracts which have only one or two primary effects, Polygala has a very wide range of effects. Most Polygala users report feeling a calming yet stimulating sensation when taking a Polygala supplement. This is interesting since this type of feeling is typically only achievable with a combination of supplements, such as a simple stack of caffeine and l theanine. Although it is quite stimulating, Polygala tenuifolia may also help promote sleep quality. Typically, the calming effects of Polygala seem to outlast the stimulating effects. The sleep promoting effects are believed to be associated with its tenuifolin content, a bioactive compound found in Polygala tenuifolia root extracts. Human trials also suggest that Polygala tenuifolia may help promote spatial awareness and organization.

Some findings show that Polygala tenuifolia may help support neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the process by which our brains can change, adapt and grow, which is an important process for many cognitive functions as they are dependant on adequate levels of neuroplasticity. This is relevant to memory and memories, as these are believed to be stored by neuron connections that are physically changing. These changes are dependant on neuroplasticity. Two of the biggest regulators for neuroplasticity are nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Studies have found that with an increase in either of these regulators, neuroplasticity can be notably boosted. Polygala tenuifolia is believed to increases both levels of BDNF and NGF. By increasing BDNF and NGF levels, Polygala tenuifolia may help promote overall brain health as well as cognitive function.

Polygala Tenuifolia Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take 100mg of Polygala tenuifolia Extract one to three times daily

    Awesome herb!

    This is by far my second favorite herb after schizandra. Improves mood, sleep and makes me excited about the next day. If you are undecided about it I would strongly recommend to try. The taste is pretty nice for an herb so I just drop a measured amount on my tongue.

    Polygala Tenuifolia powder

    I use 100 mg sublingual for uplifting mood. I read some reviews and info on it and thought I'd try it. I'm not a sad person, I'm pretty joyful anyway but I wanted to see what this would do. It's a warm herb, pleasant tasting for sublingual use and I do think it is uplifting. I use it daily, 5 days a week. I'm still experimenting with it but it's a good product, and it's pure.

    Polygala has really exceeded my expectations.

    Less than 100mg daily is enough if you dose sublingually. Give it some time and take it regularly. By the 5th day you should start feeling the effects. Better mood and cognition and TOTAL IMMUNITY to bad emotions and bad memories, you just don't care about the past and it enables you to be present in the NOW. The best thing is that it makes you productive as hell, no procrastination, no unpleasant feelings when you think about your responsibilities... as someone said, ots as if you were cheating in a game but it's in real life. One thing to remember: it's better to take multiple small doses 20-30mg sublingually because of strong nmda antagonism. If you take too much at once, you can get dizzy and feel a bit dissociated. Besides that, I can totally recommend this herb! 5/5
    And the last thing: it's shockingly cost-effective! One 30g jar can last you over a year... I don't know of any other nootropic that is that effective and so cheap at the same time...

    Quick shipping but does nothing for me

    I don’t feel anything good or bad after trying this daily.

    Brain Fog but a nice mood.

    Amazing

    I'm guessing my first review didn't make it because of the dose I listed taking. The 300mg/day dose cited in the NIH study was for memory enhancement in normal healthy adults. I use this for the mood effects, and am not a normal nor a healthy adult. It takes me 3,000 mg per day to get a functional response. The 300mg/day dose has nothing to do with the mood effects, and if that dose works for you, great. Many others report that effect too. My side effects are slight dizziness and slight disassociation. I worked up to that dose from the 100mg 3x/day, starting higher could possibly be dangerous. If this review presents more risk than help, or conflicts with some policy, I'm fine with it not being posted. I'm just happy to have a product that works.

    Nothing wrong with it

    Stronger NMDA antagonism than I expected, not subtle at all. NMDA antagonism gets stronger when combined with the NMDA antagonist Huperzine A, and even stronger when combined with tianeptine as well.

    Read more about the slew of effects here: https://examine.com/supplements/polygala-tenuifolia/

    May not be extremely suitable for racetam combinations because of NMDA antagonism.

    Amazing

    I haven't had the opportunity to try this herb from any other vendor and I don't have a reason to! I use this to help alleviate low mood and the effect is subtle but noticeable. Taste is phenomenal (great surprise). Shipping is quick even to canada; i received my package within 9-10 days.
    Thank you so much ND and I look forward to doing more business with you.

    Great product.

    I really like Polygala for occasional use. It seems to work really well on days when I have had a poor nights sleep, it makes me feel more awake/alert with improved cognitive ability which is usually EXTREMELY lacking for me when I don't sleep well, it also helps with irritability which I really struggle with when I haven't slept well.

    Does help

    especially when combined with agmatine sulfate. It's not a profound effect but noticeable

    Adoro isso!

    Chegou muito rápido! O NP estão de parabéns pelo seu atendimento também. Levo 2 ou 3 vezes por dia. No quarto dia que experimentei, realmente sentir como um baita de um antidepressivo. Você não senti mais anedonia, raiva...Tomando isso, consegui me livrar de uma medicação antidepressiva. Melhorou meu sono também. Minha mãe também está tomando e vendo ótimos resultados!

    Impressive !

    This is a very impressive herbal product. Very smooth lifting of mood. Increased feelings of comfort, enjoyment, playfulness. No discernible negative side-effects. It is gentle and effective, but I would not recommend exceeding recommended dose, or using too frequently. I choose to use it only 2 or 3 times a week. Under better life circumstances, or if absolute clarity were the goal, I would keep it on the shelf until it's needed. Fantastic product, thank you ND.

    It certainly works.

    This has literally been the only thing that has ever helped. I take this daily with a fairly large dose of omega 3 EPA/DHA. I have definitely noticed a difference and it absolutely is a positive one. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because it's not a miracle in powder form, it's not like all of my problems with my brain function just disappeared, but I will say that if you try this you do need to give it time. I've been taking it for a few weeks now and I am just starting to get the full effects. I recommend waiting at least a month before making any judgment. Either way, I am glad I tried this, it really is helping me navigate my mind and life.

    This shit is THE SHIT.

    I can't stop myself from thinking than P.Tenuifolia properties are much more wider than a simple AcCholinesterase Inhibitor, this plant need definitely more attention from the scientific community to determine the extent of it's neuro-chemistries abilities. Aside from it's traditionaly included in TCM in the formula KXS or Kai XIN SAN which contain Ginseng , Polygala , Acori Tatarinowii and Poria (and sometimes Poria paradicis much more potent than the standard poria cocos), of this formuloa knows many variants.

    Superb

    Say bye to melancholia with this compound.
    Say hi to happiness.

    Something changed

    It lasted about 4 days to build up and then, it's like magic, kinda the memories that hurt you, are still there but doesn't hurt anymore.
    Its stability is the most miraculous thing I noticed. It's like if you're always good and nothing can't beat you.
    I'm on it for about three months and, simply, I still can't believe it.
